Memory of a Melody is a collection of adjectives, personalities, and influences brought together by Kevin Rhoden, Josh Valenta, Mario Galdos, and Leo Garcia. It is a means of expression, an outlet to some, an inlet to others, and a reason to come together. It is our version of the invisibly dominant force that is music. The tales of heartbreak, love, unity, experiences, and positivity are vividly depicted by every note, lyric, and composition of each song.
Memory of a Melody formed in April of 2008. Leo and Mario had been in bands, but never found the element needed to take it to the next level. They found Josh, and the cornerstones were in place. The three of them began to write and realized an extra piece of creativity was needed. Kevin was called upon, and the course was aligned.
September 6, 2008 marked the first show in San Antonio, Texas. This started a chain of events that led to shows throughout the region and a spot on the main stage of Oyster Bake in San Antonio, Texas as the winner of the 99.5 KISS FM/Miller Lite Battle of the Bands in April 2009. The stage was shared with national acts including Adelita's Way, 10 Years, Lit, and Chevelle all playing in front of thousands of fans. Along with playing Oyster Bake, Memory of a Melody is being recruited more than ever to play larger venues with its increasing popularity.
Memory of a Melody is currently recording their debut album, entitled “Pulse”, which will be released in latter part of 2009. As this journey continues, it is our desire to have a positive influence on everyone coming along for the ride.

Memory of a Melody: Things That Make You Scream by San Antonio has never had a dearth of talent, but few bands have possessed the potential to break into national or international consciousness the way Memory of a Melody does. Scream, their debut full-length, is a demonstration of how a band that is obviously influenced by mainstream happenings in rock music can take a cue from the radio bands without sacrificing their own identity. Though Memory of a Melody scores few points towards the evolution of rock music, they masterfully attack the blandness of modern radio-rock with a drive and ferity not unlike Killswitch Engage or All That Remains. The result pummels, thrashes, and (pardon the expression) is so engaging that, in a just world, this would be huge on 99.5 KISS. It's also worth mentioning that the design and packaging on the physical CD is among the best I've ever seen on a self-release, on par with Autocratopolis, by the Dallas band Urizen. In terms of both musical and visual quality, Things That Make You Scream easily smokes most major-label releases.
Jim Beal Jr: Veterans Day to be observed with lots by Release 'em
Finding a metal band in this town is no difficult feat. Finding one ready for the big leagues is harder. Memory of a Melody is ready for the big leagues.
Friday night at Backstage Live, Memory of a Melody will celebrate the release of its “Things That Make You Scream” CD during “Melody Fest.” The all-ages show also will feature Nothing More, Our Waking Hour and Dance Like Robots. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Memory of a Melody is Mario Galdos (vocals), Wade Sigue and Roel Castillo (guitar), Joel Martinez (bass) and Robin Lopez (drums). Together since '08, the band has paid its dues working club shows and opening for an array of touring bands.
Memory of a Melody draws from classic metal while including elements of thrash and progressive metal. Melody is more than a memory for the quintet, but the melody is wrapped by hard-edged rhythm and an excellent twin-guitar attack. Galdos has a stainless steel voice. He's able to move from a pained howl to a metal croon without losing any power or punch. And the lyrics make sense.
The CD, recorded at the Progression Lab in S.A. and produced by Bryan Scott, sounds as good as anything on the metal market today and looks better than most. Put 'em in, coach.
